    Snails are pretty easy to care for. How much of the wafer did you put in there for the snail? A whole wafer is a bit too much for a single mystery, and chances are that most of it will go uneaten and foul up your water. I would limit the food to maybe a 1/4 wafer, if that.
    Thanks for the advice! I did put the whole thing in 1sm037blush.gif He did eat it but seemed to have lost interest. I took it out this morning. How often should I feed him?

    Sorry for all the questions!

    Did you order your test kit and Prime?
    I ordered the Prime. Don't have Amazon Prime so I have to wait for shipping lol. I plan to order the test strips Friday. Thanks again!

    I have these little mini pellets. I don't give a lot at all! I used to but once I saw he wasn't finishing it all, I started to give him less. He eats everything I give him now.

    and freeze dried bloodworms. Guy at the pet store told me to give the bloodworms as a treat and just one or two.

    The API test kit is not strips, it's liquid reagents you mix with your tank water

    As for your feeding question, I'd say feeding your snail every two or three days is sufficient. As Slap mentioned, snails are scavengers. They spend their days roaming their tank, scraping up all the little bits of yums hidden all over the tank. Even though you're only actively giving them some food every once in a while, they are still finding something to graze on. If you happen to have algae that grows on your glass, don't clean it off every side. Snails love to cruise over the glass and munch on the algae. The algae that grows in our tanks is an excellent source of natural food for invertebrates such as snails and shrimp.
